How much do you struggle to get furniture and other household items clean at home? Tables and chairs especially, when not cleaned for a long time can really get moldy and stained. But with the right ingredients, nothing is too dirty when you apply these practical tips for cleaning at home.
1 Scratched and Moldy Furniture
Prepare a solution of ½ cup vinegar and ½ cup olive oil and use this for cleaning mould stains and scratches. You’ll notice your furniture looking as good as new.
2 To Whiten Pillowcases
Mix a cup dish washing powder finely crumbled with a cup of washing powder, 1 cup bleach and ½ cup borax. Add hot water and wash the pillowcases with this.
3 Cleaning a Cupboard
Mix 2 spoons baking powder with 1 spoon vegetable oil. Clean your cupboard with this using a hard toothbrush.
4 Cleaning Taps and Shower Heads
Among practical tips for cleaning, vinegar cleans almost everything. Pour vinegar on taps and showerheads. Leave it for 20 minutes then wipe or rub. This gets rid of the lime scale and grime. If it isn’t clean after 20 minutes wrap the shower head in a plastic bag and allow vinegar to remain for an hour.
5 Cleaning Electric Irons
Irons can get really dirty. Cover your ironing board with thick brown paper. Sprinkle a lot of salt. Now heat the iron and make it hot. Run the iron over the salt. The dirt comes off easily.
